The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) have provided funding for a Phase I clinical trial using Canada’s Ebola vaccine (VSV-EBOV), Canada's Minister of Health, Rona Ambrose, announced last week. 

The Canadian Immunization Research Network (CIRN) is conducting the trial, which will take place in Nova Scotia, with 40 volunteers between the ages of 18-65. The trial is taking place concurrently with trials on the same vaccine in the United States in order to expedite the move to clinical trials in larger populations.

The CIRN was created in 2014 to enhance Canada’s ability to rapidly test new vaccines and foster the exchange of information among vaccine researchers and government decision makers.
